Come and join the fun with W.E.P.C.

WEPC offers 9 workable claims in California, both wet and dry.

Looking for Gold or just plain fun?  West End Prospectors has both. There is something for everyone. You'll spend your time finding gold instead of wasting time looking for a place to prospect.

We schedule monthly outings to one of our claims:  mountain and river claims are spring through summer and we work our desert claims during the fall and winter months. These outings provide opportunities to prospect and learn under actual conditions.

PLP's 2022 Six Day FALLFEST a RESOUNDING SUCCESS!

Public Lands for the People’s (PLP) 2022 Fallfest was bigger and better than ever! We had a fantastic group of folks that attended, and at least a couple dozen volunteers who are really the ones who made everything run so smooth! 

Where to start? We had many educational seminars on various topics 5 days in a row, including metal detecting class by several experts, drilling and blasting by John Norman, winning legal mining rights battles the PLP way by Clark Pearson (we have many wins in court which back up our guide cards), capturing fine gold from concentrates by Mike Pung (Mr. Gold Cube!), legal requirements for getting your blasting license and more. 

There was a very well attended Mining District and Owl Museum tour- wow, the history of the area is fantastic! Dan and Arlene Stanton were our tour guides and they know their stuff! You can book your own tour with them: www.redmtnkellysilver.com

A MESSAGE FROM OUR WEPC PRESIDENT

Hello Everyone, 

I hope this message finds you keeping well.  Just a quick message to say hello and to make this announcement.  Due to the current level of Omicron variant of COVID-19 infections still very high, we will cancel our February 1, 2022 General Meeting.  I’m hoping there will be significant reduction in the level of infections in our region that will allow us to consider a meeting in March 2022 for a General meeting.  Our new Board of Director’s had voted to cancel January 18, 2022 meeting as well however, are preparing to meet in remote audio/video setting very soon to conduct business. 

If you have not been to WEPC’s website recently, please visit the home page which has most recent news and important information posted.  As you scroll through, you can retrieve/download claim maps if you have not already.  Be sure to come across links to aerial footage of our claims posted by Member Lyle Majeska for a view of our claims not typically seen.

I’ll look forward to seeing you at meeting once we are able to resume or we might cross paths at one of our claims by good luck.  Until then,  keep healthy and go searching for gold!

Marshall Holman

President
